Technical Translations

Understanding and accuracy are key to perfect technical translation. We’re trusted by clients in highly specialised sectors across the globe to deliver faultless, precise technical translation in any language.

With industry experience and knowledge of product-specific technical terminology, our expertise simplifies the translation process whilst maintaining the highest level of quality. 

To ensure complete accuracy and reliability, we assign translators with specialist knowledge of your industry. We then compile a detailed project brief and a comprehensive glossary of key technical terms. To ensure the brief has been understood, sample translations are provided at the start of the project for your review and feedback. 

We don’t believe in sacrificing quality for speed, or vice versa, that’s why we’ve developed technology to help us deliver great results that keep to tight deadlines. Our client portal makes collecting in-country feedback simple and centralised. Then, our translation memory software enables us to build a lexicon for your project – saving time, reducing costs and ensuring high-quality consistent translations.

Types of technical translations:

  • OEM manuals
  • Website content
  • User guides
  • Material safety data sheets
  • Parts manuals
  • Product descriptions

“The Comtec team and wider team are smart, efficient and reliable. We gave them a complex and unusual project to translate topics, keywords and complex phrases into multiple languages. The linguists then had to use our content curation tool to curate feeds of content from the web on the translated topics relating to leadership, technology, learning and development (and many more topics) in a business/corporate context. These translated feeds of content have fed into our overall product offering, giving us a truly global product.”

“For several years now, Comtec has been my go-to translation agency and this has allowed me to build very good personal relationships with the project managers who handle the account. Their positive and collaborative approach makes such a difference and this has undoubtedly led to improvements in the quality of our translations and translation processes.”

Paul Kearns

IWCF (International Well Control Forum)

We have been supporting IWCF since 2019 to manage and maintain their examination papers. We also translate content linked to their training courses in a variety of languages, including French, German, Italian, Russian, Norwegian and Azeri.

“They’re professional, friendly, give quick answers to queries and provide the translations at the time agreed. They propose solutions when things can be done in a simpler or more advantageous way for their clients. So far, there are no problems to be reported.”

“Just wanted to say “Well done & thank you” to you guys at Comtec for the translations; this is not the first time I heard it was great quality… Great job – feedback like this makes this long project worth it.”

 

Lucia Ivanova
CX Change & Learning Advisor
Domino
We’ve been working with Domino since approximately 2016 and we predominantly translate marketing materials into 8 core languages. To help the process we have put in place glossaries, localisation guidelines, a feedback log, an annual survey and regular catch up calls.

“I am very satisfied with the delivery of the translations carried out by Comtec, our clients very rarely make changes to your translations (and only ever regarding technical details). Translations are completed within a very reasonable turnaround. Always having the same point of contact makes the process very easy, thanks to Léa Gorniak, as we don’t need to re-explain our requirements every time. Therefore I am very happy with the Comtec team, I have no reason to go elsewhere!”
